Crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co., under contract with the Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility (DTM), will begin a crack seal/fog seal program on various roadways throughout the City. The improvements are associated with the voter-approved Prop 101 Tucson Delivers Better Streets Program.
During the three-month-long roadway improvement project there will be day and night work. Daytime work hours will take place from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and nighttime work hours will take place from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Crews will work Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work. The dates, work hours and locations where the improvements will take place in the first three weeks of the program are:
Monday, April 27 through Saturday May 9 (includes Saturday work) – 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. (crack seal/fog seal)
Houghton Road – Irvington Road to Valencia Road.
Friday, May 1 through Saturday, May 9 (includes Saturday work) – 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. (fog seal)
Broadway – East and west of Houghton Road, including the Broadway and Houghton Road intersection
Houghton Road – North and south of BroadwayHoughton Road – Broadway to Old Spanish Trail
22nd Street – East and west of Houghton Road, including the 22nd Street and Houghton Road intersection
Fog sealing is the application of a thin layer of asphalt emulsion that helps cover small roadway imperfections, cracks or other small voids and seals the existing asphalt to preserve and rejuvenate the asphalt. During this work travel lane restrictions will be in place. At least one lane of travel will be maintained in both directions. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in these work areas. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work area. This schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Tucson Delivers Better Streets is a $100 million improvement program made possible by Tucson voters who approved a half-cent sales tax increase in May 2017. Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work to improve the quality and safety of your City streets.
